Ubuntu Renaming m4a to mp4 script?

2012-11-20  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


Hi! I don't know much about how to write scripts for the shell so maybe some of you could help me out with this;

I have a 20gb collection of m4a files (in various subdirectories) that I need to rename to mp4.

This, since Amarok wont play them - and I would really like to continue using Amarok.
